    Seems like a lot of carbs for cutting. I would lose most of that bread and get some veggies instead. Also don't have PB after your workout that is going to slow down absorbtion of protein. Not what you want at that time. Get some carbs after your workout too. Also I would change those potatoes for something else, potatoes are very very high on the GI scale and can kill a diet, if you must have something like that try sweat potatoes.

    Great advice from Pain. Definitely get yourself plenty of simple carbs post workout with your protein. I use Nlarge2 for a post shake, even while cutting.

    nlarge2 is good for post workout? and if i drink that do i also eat when i get home from the gym? or is that my food intake till 9? when i eat my egg whites, i know i need simple sugars for fast release for post workout...i beleive the carbs on a nlarge shake is about 89g per serving?(correct me if im wrong)..by the way thanks for the feed back guys, im really trying to get my shit together!!!

    I work a 9 to 5 and have no problem. Make all your food up one the weekend and it stays good all week. I make chicken, steak, hamb.... and keep it untill I want to use it. Also a lot of tuna and salmon canned. You can have bread if your daily calorie and carb allowences will allow it, but I would still stay clear, you can feel much fuller eating veggies and this will make the diet easier. Also if you do get bread get a real grain bread or wheat bread (not white bread with wheat germ as the last ingreadient on the list.....) PB is ok, just make sure it is natural PB, no hydro fats.... Also you might want to trade some of that PB for Flax oil.

    N2 is good post workout, as long as your workouts are intense enough you don't really have to count those carbs in your total carb intake (count the cals though).

    what are good veggies to eat? i know celery are empty calories, i know brocccoli is good...how about the mini carrots? and i dont eat white bread...only grain or wheat...so the carbs in oatmeal are better than the carbs in bread? so would it be better to sub a bread serving with oatmeal?

    no.......

    carrots, corn, peas, are nothing but sugar ridden.

    Broccoli, cauliflower, zucchinni, green beans, and brussel sprouts.

    Yup, swole is correct with the veggie choice. Don't forget spinach though!! If you get a slow cook oatmeal then the GI value will be a little lower than a real (first ingrediant is stone ground wheat) bread. I think the fiber content is higher which is a added bonus. Plus I feel fuller when I eat 30g or carbs worth of oatmeal the bread.

    Yes flax can be found at a health store. The diet looks good with the changes, I am still not sure what the exact macro's and cals are you might want to calc them out and see. Try to do your cardio in the morning on an empty stomach.

    If at all possible leave the bread out completely and substitute with a sweet potato or brown rice which are much lower on the GI (glycemic index). Bread is refined or processed (whole grain has more nutrients but is still refined). Anything that is bleached or processed has its chemical structure changed and it breaks down to sugar quicker, therefore it has a higher glycemic index. High GI carbs create a greater insulin spike whereas a low GI food will keep a steadier flow. You can still use dextrose or maltodextrin immediately after training (along with a quality protein) as the insulin spike will help drive protein and nutrients into the muscles, replace glycogen stores and switch the body from a catabolic state (muscle wasting) to an anabolic state (muscle building or sparing)

    If you can't do your cardio in the morning that is the next best time to do it. Your glycogen levels will be low from lifting so the cardio will get into your fat stores a little guicker, you will sacrifice some muscle but nothing major as long as your cardio is moderate intensity (60-65% max heart rate)

    Calc out the daily macros for all that and post it. It seems high calorie wise.

    That is a hell of a lot of cals to be cutting on. www.calorieking.com/foods is a good resource of the calorie counting. or www.fitday.com I cut on around 2200-2300 and that is good for me, do you have a really fast metabolism or something?

    6 egg whites/2 yolks

    9am
    1/2 cup rice
    2 chicken breast
    3/4-1 cup broccoli

    12pm
    turkey breast sandwhich mustard only
    1 can tuna

    3pm
    1/2 cup rice
    2 chicken breast
    3/4-1 cup broccoli

    6pm
    lean red meat or fish
    1 1/2 cup veggie
    1 spoonfull flax

    7:45-8pm
    protein shake 25 grams

    9:30pm
